Outcome of proposed changes to the school day

Dear stakeholders,

I am writing to inform you of the outcome from the proposal to changing the timing of the school day from September 2020. The consultation finished on the 8th June 2020 and the Academy Improvement Board have met to discuss and consider the feedback from all stakeholders. We received overwhelming positive responses and only a couple concerns raised by staff around the timings of after school detentions, staff meetings and after school clubs/activities. In response to these any activities, detentions and meetings will start 10 minutes later at 3:00pm.

I can confirm that the proposal has been sanctioned by governors and the new timings of the school day from September 2020 will be as follows:

8.30am – 8.50am Tutor Time
8.50am – 9.50am Period 1
9.50am – 10.50am Period 2
10.50am – 11.10am Break
11.10am – 12.10pm Period 3
12.10pm – 1.10pm Period 4
1.10pm – 1.50pm Lunchtime
1.50pm – 2.50pm Period 5
2.50pm – 3.00pm Tutor Time

I would like to thank all parents, carers, staff, external agencies and union representatives that engaged with the recent Academy consultation.

Yours sincerely,


Ms J Taylor
Grace Academy Coventry
